Welcome to Gamble Plantation Historic State Park! Come join us for a look back in time at what plantation life was like at the oldest building in Manatee County! You can escape the heat in our air-conditioned museum as well as experience what it was like to not have power in our historic 1840's Greek Revival style 10 room mansion by guided tour. The Park boasts 17 acres of manicured lawns, large Pavilion, and picnic area that are perfect for your next family reunion, wedding, fitness training, dog walking or just reading a book. The park also is home to the Patten House, a turn of the century "Cracker Style" home, which is currently under a complete renovation and should be complete soon. Don't forget to check our event page for upcoming events or you can call the Park office.

We look forward to seeing you,

Kevin Kiser, Park Manager
